The military decided to introduce Louisville to the largest Kentucky city. Minnesota has already announced the complete mobilization of the National Guard.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshir issued a decree on Saturday to use the US National Guard to tackle Louisville protests over the death of African-American George Floyd, CNN said. Kentucky arrived in Louisville’s largest city to “slow violence.”
“In this regard, today I am taking measures to ensure general security and will use the National Guard to maintain order in Louisville,” the governor said.
At the moment, it is known that seven people were injured during the riots in Louisville. Earlier today, Minnesota Governor Tim Wals issued a decree on the complete mobilization of the National Guard for the first time during the state’s existence.
Protests due to the death of Floyd take place in more than 30 major US cities. Speeches against the government are held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, New York, Indianapolis, Boston, Detroit, and many other cities. The most turbulent situation is observed in Minneapolis.
